The University of Nebraska makes the grade: a Princeton Review publication includes UNL as one of the nation's "Best Value" universities.
UNL is one of 150 schools nationwide to make it in the Princeton Review book and administrators said they're excited. The Princeton Review wrote UNL is included on the list because the university "allows a student to create one's own destiny" at a reasonable cost.
The Princeton Review asked students to rate the school, which included the cost of attendance, academics and financial aid. Amber Hunter, UNL's director of admissions, said making higher education within reach for everyone is a top priority. "We work very hard to ensure UNL is affordable for all students by providing the largest financial aid packages in the state," Hunter said.
That hard work is paying off. UNL is the only Nebraska school to make the "Best Value" list. Students not only commented on UNL's affordability, they also applauded the beautiful campus and wide variety of campus programming.
The Princeton Review also wrote that UNL has "ample opportunities for research and growth both academically and socially, in a college town environment second to none."
